About Episode

One of the great things about toys is their ability to appeal to almost anyone of any age. Adults love to collect stuff they’ve loved since childhood. Obviously, kids love playing with action figures, interactive toys, strategy games, and everything else. Even with everything our smartphones and tablets can do to entertain us, toys still hold a great appeal for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Toys also continue to be a powerhouse as an industry. In 2019 in the United States alone, toy sales accounted for over 20.91 billion dollars. That leaves more than enough room for new and emerging toy retailers to open and find customers who want a unique face to offer designer toys, retro/vintage favorites, and more.
Do you love toys? Have you been looking for an online toy store that offers not only unique items, but favorites from classic movies, TV shows, and product lines? If so, and if you love supporting vet-run businesses, you’re going to have a great time learning about Tactics 2 Toys! Think of this website as an essential tool for finding great deals on one-of-a-kind items and familiar favorites!

Ask Ignite: How Living With ADD & ADHD Can Become Your Superpower
Ask Ignite: How Living With ADD & ADHD Can Become Your Superpower.

Normally we talk about the advice we would give to clients from topics we are experts on, or have guests come on the show. But today I wanted to share something I have not mastered, nor can it completely be mastered, rather it’s something that I myself battle with daily. I want to share with you something near and dear to my heart, the topic of ADD and ADHD. While this condition and I use that term lightly, is normally looked at as a hindrance or negative for the vast majority both in if you are living with it or know of someone that does.

I chose to look at this as what I reference as a superpower. This journey and part of my story go back to 2015 when we had our oldest son tested and came back diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. As I think any parent would, you start researching the unknown and look at how this diagnosis will influence your child and into the future. Along this path of learning, I discovered that I myself was more than likely affected with this same condition as medical research shows that it is usually passed down from one or both of the parents. So I went out and got myself tested and sure enough, I too had this same condition. Sure I spent a little bit of time wallowing in my sorrows thinking this was a bad thing and what my future could have been like had I known or gotten medication sooner.
